Hi everyone, I'm Nicolas Rivera from Puerto Rico. I'm currently shopping for a new car and since a couple of family members have Mazdas I figured I'll give'em a shot My wife owns a CX9 Grand Touring and my parents own a Mazda 3 (2.3 L). I absolutely LOVE that car, I currently own a 2005 Nissan Altima 2.5S and there's no comparison between the two. In terms of build, engine, brakes, fit & finish and overall feel, the Mazda 3 is light years ahead. I'm really liking the new 2010 MazdaSpeed 3 and looking forward to buying one as soon as they're available. I've been lurking your forums for a couple of weeks now and wanted to let you guys know that YOU ROCK!!!!! Thanx a lot for all the information posted, it's been really useful!!!
